Description: "As many of you know, Bobby Brewster is an ordinary boy who has the most extraordinary adventures. He is delighted to be in his first paperback, because he enjoys visiting people's homes, and being in your very own book in your very own house is what he enjoys the most." Consists of an introduction by the author, and three of his favourite stories: The cuckoo clock; The sick cow; and Football boots.
Lovely three-tone monochrome illustrations throughout.
Smooth pictorial covers are slightly worn and creased. Minor rubbing along the spine. Internally, the book is in superb condition: pages are crisp, bright, unmarked, and have even resisted tanning. A few minor specks of foxing are present on the tips of the pages, but these are only visible when the book is shut.
A nice copy of a scarce title.
